Flowers

Deliveries of lovely, sustainably grown flowers are back on from Tuesday to Sunday every week until the end of October. This week (Sunday, 20th September) I will be back at Sofacoma Market in person, but if you would like your flowers delivered, just email with a day’s notice and I will deliver them to your door. Alternatively, you could reserve some to pick up at the Market. Once you have contacted me. I will confirm availability as soon as I can and you can then pay via BACS, contactless or with cash/cheque in an envelope.

Delivery is free within 7 miles of South Hinksey.

What’s at the plot now:

The dahlias are abundant along with cosmos, zinnias, strawflowers and a second flush of roses and delphiniums. Asters are still growing strong with rudbeckia, phlox and a range of beautiful grasses.

Some recent pickings:

If you would like a regular delivery weekly, fortnightly or monthly, why not buy a flower subscription? Cost is dependent on the length of the subscription and the size of the jar/bouquet/bucket you choose – all contain seasonal, local flowers delivered to your door. Makes a great present.

Bouquets of flowers are supplied in a jam jar or a vase, from smaller bunches at £5.00 to larger ones at £10.00 and £20.00 or over.

Jam Jar Flowers start at £6.00 and are made up of what is looking best each week.

Gift bouquets:

Buckets of flowers to arrange yourself start at £15.00 with at least 50 stems. If there is a particular colour palette you prefer for your bouquet or bucket, let me know.

A word about the flowers: all the flowers and foliage are grown (and sometimes foraged) by me locally with a light environmental footprint and an organic approach. Most have been grown from seed, using organic methods, in high quality peat free compost. Once harvested, they are transported less than a mile from the plot and are conditioned, but not treated with anything but water.This means the flowers you buy from me will not have been doused several times in chemicals. They are ephemeral, beautiful and gentle on the environment. In fact, many of them are chosen specifically because they are loved by butterflies and bees.
